The "George W. Bush and Dick Cheney did it" syndrome. Ain’t enough enough?

How Long Can You Blame Bush?

Simply Jews: I am reading the WaPo Article Paying for Bush’s 2003 invasion of Iraq with a sense of growing wonder. The author, Eugene Robinson, starts the article with a sentence so transparent you might as well confine your reading of the whole to this quote:

As President Obama struggles to deal with the crisis in Iraq, it’s useful to remember who gave the world this cauldron of woe in the first place: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

The rest is obvious: litany of mistakes made by Bush and his administration in 2003 and afterward. I bet you all have read it about a thousand times.

Should I state at this point that I was against the whole deal in 2003, for simple reasons that proved to be true in the end? Probably, but this is not the point.

The point is that today is August 13, 2014. We are 11 years removed from 2003. We are in the middle of the second term of the current POTUS. 6 years on the job, that is.

And instead of asking what the heck the said POTUS was doing for the last 6 years to resolve the issues created, between other things (but not solely by all means), by the mistakes of that insidious pair (Bush/Cheney), Mr. Robinson still peddles the tired old crapola?

WTF, Mr. Robinson? Nothing worthy your pen anymore in the whole big universe? Possibly a trip to the Mount Sinjar, to take a peek at how Yazidis are doing? Or visit the Kurds, who do their best to save the Yazidis?

Instead of carping about the Bush/Cheney mistakes, that is…

Obama: “What’s Happening In Iraq Isn’t My Fault !”

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
